Monthly on the 3rd Thursdays at 10 am CST
Bravery is ending systemic racism. Our monthly book circle exists to: hold each other accountable to the work of anti-racism, listen to our unique perspectives, and change racism starting from within ourselves first. Due to the sensitive nature of our discussions, we require new members to email us for an invitation. 100% of this book club's membership fees go to a non-profit working to end systemic racism and/or provide accessible mental health care to black women and girls.
Our next books: This month, we're finishing up reading Fearing The Black Body: The Racial Origins of Fat Phobia by Sabrina Strings, PhD.
Weekly on Wednesdays at 10 am CST
Bravery is expanding freedom of expression. This group of like-minded creatives meets weekly to discuss their creative careers, the practicalities of making money with art, and the bravery of putting yourself out there as an artist in any form or industry.
Our Next Book: Join fellow creative visionaries to adventure through Elizabeth Gilbert's beloved Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. In addition to the weekly chapter discussions, attendees receive group coaching and career guidance by Emily Ann Peterson, songwriter & author of bestselling Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous.
Weekly on Wednesdays at 7 pm CST
Bravery is admitting you're burnt out, overwhelmed, overworked, and a little frazzled. This book circle is for anyone who wants to learn how to rest, recoup, and reboot your endurance! We believe that sustainable ways to bravely make this world a better place begins from a place of camaraderie and rest.
Facilitated by Emily Ann Peterson and using concepts from her book, Bare Naked Bravery, members of this book circle get to read and discuss books, articles, or other media pieces. The goal is to gather to nourish, guide, and rejuvenate our brave resistance to a world that demands more from us every day.
Our Next Book: Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily (PhD in health behavior) & Amelia Nagoski (DMA in conducting orchestral music)
